Doesn't matter. The point is to offer a feature which won't fail
unexpectedly. If a user tries to supply patches for an ebuild that
doesn't explicitly support it, the user gets told at pretend time.

If you want to do it that way, the feature should have no EAPI or tree
support at all, and it becomes entirely reliant upon users knowing
enough to sort out the problems themselves.
